ORLANDO | The Friends of the Orange County Library System will be hosting a Pride Book Sale during LGBTQ Pride Month, all thanks to a donation by the LGBTQ+ Center Orlando.
Hundreds of books will be made available to purchase June 1-30 on the third floor of the Orlando Public Library located downtown at 101 E. Central Blvd. The books include fiction, non-fiction, classics, new authors and more.
“When we made the decision to downsize our library, I could not think of a better place to donate our books to,” said Dr. George Wallace, executive director of The Center, in a press release. “Orange County Library System is an inclusive safe space for many people.”
The book sale serves to help raise funds so that “the community can enjoy the privileges of information access, entertaining events and education.” The Friends of the Orange County Library System supports the library in “enhancing resources, innovations, and services for the public.”
The Center Orlando is a nonprofit organization that “promotes and empowers the LGBTQ+ community and its allies through information, education, advocacy and support.”
